International Foundation programmes
We have several successful partnership arrangements that offer preparatory courses if you are a student seeking entry to undergraduate degrees. These courses offer guaranteed entry to a specific degree at City (subject to availability of places at Cass Business School), provided that you achieve the grades required. These courses are intended for students who are studying in the education systems of countries that are not recognised for direct entry to a City degree.

As a student enrolling at INTO City, you are effectively a City student and so will have full access to City University London's facilities.
